After 14 years of a “thrilling” ride, travelling 35 countries and living life to the max, Lang Te and Balke Otene got hitched.

The couple married at their modern elegant wedding on November 18, 2015 in front of 110 guests. They chose Crown Casino in Melbourne for their ceremony and reception and Lang was having “none of that frilly stuff.” “I do not enjoy anything frilly, pink, pastel, and if I did not deem it necessary I did not bother with it,” laughs the carefree bride, aged 33. It was her partner Blake, aged 32, that was more the “bridezillia” according to Lang. “He wanted to fly in on a helicopter!”

Lang and Blake attended high school together in New Zealand and moved over to Melbourne about a decade ago. Since then they have travelled 35 countries, worked on their careers and property portfolio. “It’s gone so fast as we have had so much fun,” smiles Lang.

Weddings are always a busy time but Lang and Blake had a few extra things on their plate. “Once everyone started flying in it became mayhem!” explains Lang. “It was so much fun to have 30 adults and 11 kids all staying in my house.”

The couple honeymooned on Victoria’s Great Ocean Road at the Lorne Hotel.
